"Ein pensionierter Agent des britischen Geheimdiensts wird wieder aktiviert, um einen "Maulwurf" in den eigenen Reihen dingfest zu machen. Suggestive Verfilmung eines Romans von John Le Carré, der konsequent Helden- und Männlichkeitsbilder des Agentenfilm-Genres dekonstruiert. Vor dem tristen Szenario des Kalten Kriegs zeigt der listenreich, labyrinthisch und betont langsam entwickelte Film eine unglamouröse Welt der Spionage, in der Misstrauen und Undurchsichtigkeit regieren und das Politische und Professionelle auch privateste Beziehungen unterwandert, wobei Ideale und Loyalitäten auf der Strecke bleiben."
